, listen to this. they have first energy corp plans to idle the coal-fired power plant on the ohio river and this is the samous power plant, a giant plan because soft demand for electricity and competition from gas-fired plants that are cheaper to run and cleaner to operate. so the facts are not in favor ofú governor romney in that commercial and as a matter of fact, if people rely on coal-fired electricity right now, that power is more expensive to produce than the market rate. as a matter of fact, in some cases, could be double than what the market is right now. so governor romney had better check his facts before he runs that commercial across the state. >> jennifer: obviously the energy issue is going to be a big one in terms of jobs. the production tax credit in terms of wind energy. ohio's position and growing that industry enormously. the number one wind energy growth state in the country. romney is against the production tax credit. what do you think of president obama's clean energy policies, including the al
of green energy to germany and orders kept coming through even as total allocation for solar power got cut back. then they got a slew of orders and the stock doubles. i was stock about the stock being a value trap. most important, i had a huge home run telling you to get out at 138. why did i press it? greedy on the short side as a stupid buyer is on the long side. with first solar i arrogantly failed to practice my mantra, that bulls make money, bears make money, and hogs get slaughtered. i was no longer just being a bear on first solar, i was being a hog. i blew it. when it was at 13 i should have bren changing my mind instead of digging in my heels. the stock is down more than 100 points from where i first told you to sell it, it's never too late to declare a victory, as well as atone myself when there were 13 points to the downside. the business is not so horrible. no reason to buy it t no reason to hate it either. is first solar a terrific situation? no. was it a value trap at 13? no. no more than darden was a value trap in september of last year when i said the parent company of red

miner peabody energy about the demand for coal and what that demand says about the global economy and his business. >> coal markets are heavily reliant on electricity demand, which is a surrogate for gdp, and for our met lurjical coal it's steal production. and with europe soft, and the u.s. not getting traction, and now china softening, we've already begun to slow down our production base. we may see more of that across the industry over the next quarter or so, and until we see economic activity getting back to where it used to be. >> do you keep one eye on the price of natural gas. how high to natural gas prices have to go. >> there's prices critical to us. our biggest platform is in the powder river basin in the western u.s. that price is 2.50 if we're above now. the illinois boivin stsz $3 gas. and the east coast that gas competitive price is 4.50. internationally, there's no competition with gas, because it's priced so high that coal is the competitive fuel except in >> where is the customer demand going to come from, considering the regulatory issues in the u.s. when it come

energy oil independent. liz: an annual low rate from the previous 1.7%. from your perspective, what do we need to do to figure out this problem of growth? >> first of all, why is it they always have to revise lower? we need to, in my view, the burden the small and large businesses from the uncertainty they have right now. on this fiscal cliff. look at the sequestration, all the disasters that lie ahead. leof course we have a dysfunctional government, you want to blame republicans, democrats, it is dysfunctional. the business person out there, going to have to hire an accountant to handle obamacare and the new regulations coming down? or are you going to hire additional people? we have to give them an environment of certainty, and that means among other things a tax code with two deductions, home loan and charitable deductions and the rest of it you do away with. have you met an american but when support that simplification of the tax code? liz: i met a lot of lobbyists but wouldn't. but they quickly get your thoughts on defense spending. facing billions and billions of cuts over 10 years.

demand for energy out there. not only here, but in the world. so i'm just hoping that the stocks can hold on to their gains by keying off better housing numbers, which won't help oil but could certainly add to equities. i think the equities are going to have a hard time ignoring what the oil seems to be signaling. >> all right. we'll leave it there. thanks for your insight. leave it here. we have more on the oil slide on this busy wednesday edition of the "closing bell." >>> oil continues its slide but boone pickens says that's all the more reason to focus on natural gas. we'll find out why he thinks that's the way of the future and the auto industry. >>> then, he wants to know why no one on wall street is in handcuffs yet over the financial crisis. find out exactly which ceos he blames and what he says the department of justice needs to do right now to punish them. >>> plus, home builders are soaring but short sellers are hot on their trail. we're bringing in experts to look at the state of the recovery and which side of the housing trade you should be on. it's all coming up on the "clos

and me by the way. the money believe it or not comes from the same energy department program that backed the bankrupt solyndra. what guaranties americans have that solo won't become another solyndra. great to have you back on the show. what makes me very nervous about this besides solyndra, this company is going out there to make solar panels. they're making the very thin solar panels easier to install and use but we have a production glut of these in the world right now. they're being made very efficiently in asia. as a result the price has declined 30% in the past year and they only expect demand to increase 8% over the next year. so if i were going into a business right now, this is not the business i would choose. what do you think? >> no. it's true. you look over the last three years it is 75% drop in solar, the cost of solar panels. and you mentioned asia. in china right now, suntech power, one of the largest solar manufacture you ares in the world is threatening to be delisted from the new york stock exchange. their stock went from $90 a share in 2008 to dollar a share today. even
earlier this month to resume construction after government leaders approved japan's new energy policy. the policy allows work to continue on plants already under construction while at the same time encourages japanese to end their reliance on nuclear power by the 2030s. the industry minister visited aomori prefecture two weeks ago. he told the governor that the ohma plan could be completed. j-power managers plan to inform residents of local municipalities of the decision next week. two other nuclear plants were under construction before last year's disaster. no decision has been made on resuming those projects. >>> once these facilities are built, they must pass stricter safety standards before they can start generating power. members of the newly formed nuclear regulation authority will draft the rules. the government created the nra after the fukushima accident exposed the shortcomings of the former watchdog. we're looking at what's expected of this new authority on today's "nuclear watch." the nra replaced the nuclear and industrial safety agency. it also took over the responsibili
water because the energy of the sun evaporates only the clean, pure water, puts it in the clouds, condenses and comes down as rain, distilled water. we built a small box that is so efficient at reclaiming all of the energy after it essentially boils and distills the water inside the box. it recycled the energy so the only energy consumed by the box is to run the computer, sensors and processor and the box will consume less power than a hand-held hair driver. >> so you created this nearly ten years ago and it is basically making dirty water clean. >> it makes dirty water absolutely pure. we worked on it more than a decade, but like all of the things that we do, we need partners to bring it to the world. most of the products i make, i bring to the biggest and bst best medical product and pharmaceutical giants in the world but they don't go to remote villages that coca-cola goes to. so we were excited that once we showed muhtar kent what we have, and said look you have the only plausible distribution channel that is so global it can actually make the impact and turn our technology i

iran's nuclear program. according to the international atomic energy agency, during the last year alone, iran has doubled the number of energy uses in its underground nuclear facility. at this late hour, there is only one way to peacefully prevent iran from getting atomic bombs, and that is by placing a clear nucleare on iran's weapons program.

of the office of energy policy at the u.s. treasury and he joins me now on the phone. phillip, when i first heard this i thought it sounded really strange and i thought about it is is brilliant. one of the reasons you say because when policy makers talk about releasing oil from the spr, it makes people nervous, it makes traders nervous and actually gives the price support, right? >> exactly right. earlier in the hour you had phil flynn talking about gasoline and he was saying inventories are low. one of the major reasons that inventories are low is that the inventories are no longer held by exxon and so on. they're held like companies like global partne in new england and they cut their purchases for inventories whenever they fear prices going. everybody understands that you don't want to go buy now if you think prices are going to be lower. melissa: yep. >> so there just has been a litany over the, since march of, maybe we'll release the strategic reserves and maybe we won't and so invariably what everybody does is cut back. melissa: right. absolutely. then another reason as way was thinki

's what. the consumer report for educational technology health insurancing the energy around the world develop better tool for teachers. i think the panelists got it right in terms what we're trying to do. a few points that we're thinking about first the issue about power. who controls it? the person who controls the platform will have a enormous platform. we need to be careful. we are going to be careful about conflict of interest. we're not going to allow anyone to make investments in educational technology companies. consumer reports have a great online of the interest rules. they don't take free samples, for example. we're going to have the circles in place to make sure that we're not biasing the test result and the rutlez. when you do that the swhoal system falls apart. that's something we're talking about. the second thing we brought up is about equity. it's an important issue when you're thinking about technology in the classroom, the issue around the digital dwoid. one thing we're happy with is the ability to pick up what we call energy treatment effects. that's the worry one t
